11 Apr 2021
As a leader, it’s no surprise that one of your most crucial jobs is making sure employees are productive day in and day out. Many leaders have attempted to increase team productivity by introducing state-of-the-art technologies and testing the most successful workflow methods they could find. Unfortunately, they’re missing a key ingredient. The best way to spur productivity is to make your employees happy.
Don’t just take my word for it. In 2019, Oxford University's Saïd Business School published research stating that workers are 13% more productive when they’re feeling happy. Not only is productivity significantly improved, but happy employees are more likely to stick around for the long haul. That means you get to enjoy low turnover rates and keep the best employees to yourself.
The question now is, how do you make your employees happy? While there are many factors that play into happiness, the following leadership strategies will certainly get you and your team on the right track.
